    I would love if someone would post up some benchmarks from this phone. Quandrant scores. Maybe some neocore. Nenamark....anything so I can have some type of comparison from this phone compared to my Droid X.

    They took off the FM Radio? I didn't think of it affecting their Muve Music service, I was just thinking it could save them some money because instead of needing to stream radio over the data network they could do so over the FM Radio which wouldn't cost Cricket extra. I'm surprised it's not on there.

    ok, so some people already have it already, does that mean I can walk into any cricket store right now and get it? or do these people that have it now, have it only because they are dealers and we (the customers) will be able to get it....?

    I'm not a dealer, and I got mine today. Can anybody help me figure out how to turn off the auto correct thing?

    No, no, no! You're doing it wrong! Keep it on, and submit your best autocorrect fails here;


    That way I continue dying of laughter!! I mean I literally almost fell off of my chair laughing on some of these...

    On a serious note, I'd love to be able to help you, but alas I was only looking at a friends phone at the time. They are both gone now, I am back to waiting for mine...so I really needed these laughs!

    Okay removing link, didn't relize that there were so many youngins on board. Sorry about that...

    I had called the local corporate store yesterday and talked to someone who said he'd hold one for me. He gave me his cell phone number to text him this morning and remind him, and he'd let me know when they came in. So I texted him this morning, and he texted me back this afternoon to say that it was in. I would just call all of your local stores until you find one that has them, because I know that some stores won't have (or won't sell) them until Monday or Tuesday.

    Yeah, some of those are hilarious, but as fun as they are to read, I'd hate to accidentally send some of that stuff that I read. How embarrassing - especially the ones involving parents!!

    The Mercury is honestly THE best phone in the world (Price Wise) because all of its specs are either the same or higher than that of the Galaxy S II. I am not allowed to actually use my Mercury yet, since my parents want me to unbox it on christmas with the family. I have used a demo at Cricket, though, and it is truly amazing! I only have 3 things to complain about so far:

    1. The Power and Volume Buttons are built on to he back panel WTF?
    2. I don't like the Huawei Launcher, I really just wan to use the Gingerbread Launcher, but I can't.
    3. The LED Flash isn't very "effective" I guess you could call it. It is a bit far from the camera, and it only affects the corner of the picture. I might be wrong, since I used it in bright light in the store, but I'm still suspicious.

    Everything else about the phone is unbelievable, and even my mom wants to get it, and she doesn't care much for phones.

    Saul, you can put other launchers on the phone.

    I went to my local Cricket dealer today and they were just putting the Mercury into the system. They had 5. I didn't get mine because I didn't have the money today. But, the guy let me hold one and look at the front facing camera. It was real nice!!!!! Has an Iphone esque look to it in my opinion.

    I know I can change the Launcher, in fact, I will be changing it to the GO Launcher EX. And the flash? I didn't have my finger over it, since I took the photo while it was in normal mode (not landscape) and I held the phone at the bottom. The attendant even asked me when he demonstrated the flash:

    "Did the flash work? I didn't see it."
    But I bet that's either because it's one of the first shipped Mercuries and/or the store was very bright.

    I love this phone, it's 1 GHz processor really makes it feel great. The only other con I noticed just now that I watched the video was that it has no microSD :/

    I found the back to feel very plasticky, too, lol. But the gloss effect makes it look really elegant. I just wonder why Cricket didn't get the Textured Black or Elegant White colors :S

    I shouldn't be complaining though, because it's a great phone, and I couldn't ask for more [for Cricket].

    It has the Cricket logo on the back cover, but it's not very big. On the front it doesn't say Cricket but "Huawei" right below the speaker.
